    Dr. Debono,

    Can you please tease us with one poem so we can have an idea what the book is about.

    I would really appreciate if you can share with us one piece of your work.

    Carry on with the good work dear Dr Debono
    An astute mind like yours is so hard to find in parliamentarians nowadays.
    Please do not let the witch intimidate you from shouting out the truth.
    Only the likes of the evil clique would find fault with what you stand for now.
    Note that you are in my thoughts and prayers of many.

      Being a self-confessed poetry buff, while I disagree with Franco’s
      logic in his parliament-related arguments, his keen interest in poetry
      and particularly Haiku, changes my impression somewhat.

      By seeking refuge in this subtle art form, Franco, you have risen by
      a few notches in my esteem. I have some regret about having mis-
      judged you. I may not agree with what you say, but I now see you in a
      different light.

        @ Stephen
        When I read your writeup and saw your name it remind me of:
        Jesus who also was not believed by Peter the Saint, going to the Cross Peter spoke foul language to emphasize he did not know Jesus.
        His 12 apostles went into hiding.
        Thomas did not believe until he touched Jesus open wound.
        It is said Stephen was stoned but Paul the Saint.
        The lesson is when one is alone it is uphill his only strength is truth, correctness and strength to lead in time others will follow.
        Stephan you are not the first who changed your mind on Dr. Franco Debono.
        . . . and I heard Gone zi saying if you do not vote for him you vote for labour, really, really, do you have to be a leader of the P.N. to enlighten us, my goodness that will make us all feel bad or pleased I guess.

            Stardust, il-bully,
            until I realised the depth of Franco’s
            character, I thought he was just a Mr
            know-it-all. Franco’s interest in haiku
            earns him my respect. I have always
            read his blog pre-conditioned, but I now
            see that I was wrong.

        Taf li skont il-ligi trid taghti zewg kopji lill-Bibljoteka Nazzjonali ta’ Malta bhala ‘legal deposit’?. Skond il-katalgu li ghandhom on-line ma jidhirx li ghandhom kopja tal-ktieb tieghek. Lanqas l-Universita’ ma ghandhom. Min fejn jista’ wiehed jakkwistah?
